Hallertau hops and Bavarian-style top-fermenting yeast deliver a thick, creamy head with overtones of banana and clove esters. This authentic German weizen style beer, with a slight hazy appearance, concludes with a crisp finish.

For the price, the beer is remarkable in my area. 6 bucks for 6 beers is amazing! This beer isn’t at the top of the profile charts, but the beer makes up for it with its price point.

The best American made German style wheat. It is a nice rendition of the popular German Hefeweizen made by Weinhenstephaner, Tucker, and Hofbrau. It has an excellent banana front with a clove finish. I like to see a little lighter color in a wheat beer, but this likely uses American or English wheat instead of German white.

Draft: Lemon, bubblegum, clove nose with a base of banana bread. Cloudy amber, thick head, good lace. Banana and lemon on the front end, wheat bread on the back. Medium body, normal carbonation. Well, I’ll be damned. This was good and fairly authentic.

Pours golden with a slightly amber cast against a slight haze. Very nice head and lacing retention is good. Very good nose of banana, clove and bubblegum. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation, with a touch of effervescence on the finish. Quite nice flavor profile that is well balanced with typical Weizen complexity. Banana leads then flows into a slight clove spiciness over a light biscuit. The finish is crisp and leaves you with a lingering banana/clove aftertaste over a hint of hops. While not as intense as Allagash White, for the price point, this one is world class. Great job Yuengling and congrats on the Gold.

I have been looking for this brew since college. WV Brewing Company in Huntington, WV brewed an almost exact beer in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. They closed the brewery in the 1980’s. Glad to enjoy the taste again

Solid summer beer. Refreshing hints of banana, clove. Very yeasty, refreshing. Would recommend highly at its price (6 pack for 6.99)

Not a German hefe....pours a clear amber and smells sweet and strong...the flavor is sweet, almost too sweet but with a crisp aftertaste

Hazy golden appearance. Minimal head with no lacing. Banana bread and clove on the nose. Tastes is more banana with cloves coming through with some taffy and a hint of yeast. Moderate carbonation with a dry finish. Crisp and refreshing. Hits all the right points to be a nice German Hefeweizen and for the he price, you absolutely can’t beat it

12 ounce bottle, one of my friends gave me a bottle to try. Served in a Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like cloves, bananas, and some wheat/grainy malt. It tastes like cloves, bananas, lemon peel, wheat/grainy malt, and a lingering bubblegum finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth, refreshing and easy to drink. This was a pleasant surprise, and since the Yuengling seasonals are usually priced well in my area (usually around $6.99 a 6-pack) I’ll have to buy some of this for the summer. I liked it.

12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 4/22/2016. Pours very hazy golden yellow/orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, banana, bubblegum, clove, white pepper, wheat, biscuit dough, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen. All around nice robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV, with an impressive mouthfeel as well. A very enjoyable offering.
